Enabling people to become the pilots of their own high-functional longevity.



With the first minimum viable platform for the health care industry to place cardiovascular geroprotection* into the hands of everyone.

Our Approach


Target Cardiovascular Aging!

"Because man is only as old as his arteries." 

Thomas Sydenham, English physician, 1624-1689


Treating cardiovascular aging simultaneously prevents multiple aging-related diseases.

Uncover Biomarkers of Aging.

Aging and disease are defined as the gradual loss of function.

We therefore developed the first in-silico model of the CV system to

uncover its modifiable biomarkers of function and aging -

the CV functionome.

Create A Mimimum Viable Platform.

To help the health care industry test the benefits of geroprotection now.

  • Reducing the CVD burden (for health care payers)

  • Accelerating research (for pharma & biotech)

  • Defusing the demographic aging transition
